You can earn up to 70% of the royalty while having the control to set your own price. Publishing is fast and your book will usually appear on the Kindle store within a day. As well as publishing in English, it is also possible to publish in German, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. Other features include linking to the print version, editing the book once published and links to your website.

Amazon works similarly to Google. Once uploaded, your book is listed as a result in the library and can be viewed using the ‘look inside’ feature in a limited “preview” capacity until the item is purchased.
